First week of school information:
Class supply list:
Some parents have questions or concerns about AR Grading policies. These policies are directives that have been given to teachers by SRMS administration. All reading and advanced language arts teachers have been asked to implement these policies in our classrooms:
1. Students will receive a test grade for meeting their AR Goal each nine weeks. The AR Goal is obtained through STAR Testing (which measures each individual student's reading level) and is based on 20 minutes of reading per day.
2. This year, SRMS is requiring two non-fiction books each nine weeks. If students do not meet their non-fiction requirement, they should receive a zero for that portion of their grade.
Students were made aware of these policies in the beginning of the school year, and are reminded frequently to be actively working toward their goals.
Per our administration, these are the policies that are being followed in advanced Language Arts. If there are any questions about your student's progress, please let me know.
